Thanks to Pastor Mike for sharing his hopeful, faith-filled perspective on prosperity and the gifts God has given us. I love his expression, "God doesn't print money, he provides seeds to plant." I'm thinking much differently today about my finances and my faith.

An easy afternoon read reminding us what is truly important in life.
